THE general purpose of the series of Hand-lists of the 
plants cultivated in the Royal Gardens which is in 
course of publication, and of which the present one is a 
part, is sufficiently indicated in the preface to that which 
enumerates the trees and shrubs. 

The collection of Ferns, whether tropical or temperate, 
is perhaps, next to that of Palms, the most important 
feature of the cultivation under glass in the Royal 

A special interest attaches to it, because it has been 
used so much in the preparation of most of the books and 
papers dealing with ferns which have been published in 
this country during the last half century. The celebrated 
botanical artist, Francis Bauer, was resident draughtsman 
for 50 years (1790-1840) to the Royal Botanic Gardens at 
Kew, and the beautiful series of analytical drawings of 
ferns which he made were published by Sir William 
Hooker, after his death in 1842, with descriptive letter- 
press and additions, under the title of Genera Filicum. 
During the 25 years (1840-1865) for which Sir William 
Hooker was the director of the gardens, his attention 
was specially concentrated on ferns. Under the title of 
Species Filicum he published an elaborate work in five 
1000 Wt 29117 r>/0f> D & S 29 23941 a 2 



volumes, in which all the known species of typical ferns 
are fully described, and their synonomy and geographical 
distribution worked out, with copious illustrations by 
Mr. Walter Fitch. Of this, the first volume appeared in 
1846, and the last in 1864. He planned also a condensed 
hand-book of all the known ferns, to be called Synopsis 
Filicum, intended specially for the use of colonists and 
travellers. All the drawings for this had been made, 
but the letter-press was not far advanced when he died in 
the autumn of 1865. It was completed by Mr. J. G. 
Baker, F.R.S., now Keeper of the Herbarium, in 1868, 
and a second edition was brought out in 1874. Since 
that date many hundred new species have been dis- 
covered, and a volume of Hooker's Icones Plantarwn, 
containing plates and descriptions of the more interesting 
of the novelties, was published in 1887. Mr. Baker ha g 
also published in the Annals of Botany (1891) a summary 
of new ferns discovered or described since 1874. The 
type specimens from which most of the descriptions and 
plates contained in this series of books have been made 
are deposited in the Kew Herbarium. 

The living collection in the garden owes its com- 
pleteness very largely to the zeal and assiduity with 
which the veteran pteridologist, Mr. John Smith, curator 
of the Royal Gardens from 1841-63, watched over it for 
more than 40 years. 

In his privately printed Records of Kew (pp. 322, 323) 
he gives the following particulars of its origin and de- 
velopment : " In the year 1822 I found the collection of 
ferns at Kew extremely poor, especially as regards tropical 
species, very many of those introduced in previous years 

having been lost and very few new ones added. . . . The 
tender exotic species were more or less of them growing 
without any arrangement in different houses, and un- 
named, their number amounting to about 40. In 1825 I 
arranged the tropical species in a group at the end of the 
then lean-to house . . . now included in the tropical fern 
house, the area they occupied being 6 ft. by 12 ft. These 
formed the nucleus of the now great collection. They 
were successively added to by importations of living 
plants, as also plants raised from spores obtained from 
herbarium specimens." 

" The collection continued yearly to increase, and in 
1846 [1845] I drew up a list of the collection, which was 
published in an appendix to the Botanical Magazine, for 
that year ; the number then amounted to 400 [378] species. 
This in 1857 [1856] was followed by another list, entitled 
* Catalogue of Cultivated Ferns,' in which 600 [504] species 
are enumerated." 

. The principal books published by Mr. Smith are his 
Ferns, British and Foreign, issued in 1866, which con- 
tains a classified list of all the species then known in 
cultivation, full directions for the cultivation of ferns of 
the different climatic types and by far the most complete 
history of their gradual introduction which .has ever 
appeared in print, and his Historia Filicum, issued in 
1875, which contains woodcuts of 220 types and gives a 
full exposition of his views on fern classification. 

In 1868 the last published list was prepared by Mr. J. G. 
Baker. It enumerates 802 species and varieties of ferns 
and 48 of fern allies. 


The present list comprises 1116 species and varieties of 
ferns and 97 of fern allies ; this is exclusive of British 
ferns, of which 536 varieties are in cultivation. 

The collection falls into three great groups : (i.) 
Tropical; (ii.) Temperate; and (iii.) Hardy Ferns. 

The Tropical Ferns are cultivated in No. II. House. 

The Temperate Ferns are cultivated in No. III. ; the 
Filmy Forns have a separate House (No. II. A), con- 
structed for the special treatment which they require. 
The fine collection of Temperate Tree Ferns is contained 
in the Temperate House. 

The Hardy Ferns are arranged on and about a small 

rockery, of the Key Plan, and forming the south 

boundary of Lawn L. 

The structural deveJopment of the buildings in which 
the collection is housed has kept pace with its growth. 
Their history may be given briefly. 

The Tropical Fern House (No. II.) is a span-roofed 
house 129 feet long, 34 feet broad, and 15 feet high in the 
centre. It has a wide transept on the south side, 40 feet 
long. 33 feet wide, and 19 feet high. 

In 1841 the site of this house was occupied by two 
lean-to houses used for miscellaneous collections of stove 
plants. They are enumerated in Dr. Lindley's Report to 
the Treasury (1838) as Nos. 2 and 3 ; the former stood to 
the west, and was 50 feet long ; the length of the other 


was 60 feet. It was in No. 2 that, as stated above, John 
Smith first arranged the nucleus of the collection of 
Tropical Ferns. 

In 1843, No. 2 was doubled and made into a span 

In 1845, No. 3 was entirely taken down, and a new 
span -roofed house erected in its place. It joined on to 
No. 2, which was kept at a somewhat lower temperature, 
but opened into it through a partition. The centre was 
filled up with slate shelf staging, and the sides with stone 
shelves. No. 2 was used as a stove for rare palms and 
large tropical ferns. No. 3 was at first occupied by the 
Woburn collection of orchids presented by Her Majesty 
the Queen ; for this purpose it proved eventually un- 
suited. The orchids were gradually replaced by Aroidece 
and ferns. Ultimately the latter obtained possession of 
the whole house. According to John Smith (Records, p. 
334), " the centre of the house was a raised sloping 
rockery, amongst which the plants were growing in a 
natural state, forming fine bushy specimens." 

A small house for tree ferns was built in 1861 ; this 
was connected with the principal house in 1868, and now 
forms the transept. 

In 1879 the Tropical Fern House, which from the 
decay of the timbers had lapsed into an almost ruinous 
condition, was further severely damaged by the hail 
storm of August 3rd; 1,152 panes of glass in it were 
broken. It was subsequently put into a thorough state 
of repair, but the collections received considerable 


In 1887 the west end of the house was set back a few 
feet ; the staging was partly re-arranged and the broad 
path through the transept was made. 

The humid conditions necessary for the cultivation of 
tropical ferns are unfortunately not conducive to the 
preservation of the structures in which they are grown 
when they are built of wood. In 1889 it therefore again 
became necessary to renew the east wing of No. II. House. 
In order to secure greater durability it was decided to use 
iron for the principal framework, and wood only for the 
lights. The top ventilation was provided for by means 
of a lantern in&tead of by the older and more clumsy 
method of sliding sashes. At the same time the use of 
green glass in the reconstructed wing was abandoned 
This was introduced at Kew in 1846 on the recommenda- 
tion of the late Mr. Robert Hunt, F.R.S., who advocated 
its use on theoretical grounds which are now known to be 
mistaken. The resulting improvement in the growth of 
the plants, especially the species of Adiantum was very 
marked, and in 1892 a portion of the west wing was 
re-glazed with equally satisfactory results. 

The temperate ferns are now collected in a house 
(No. HI.), which was also built on the system of mixed 
iron and wood construction. It was erected in 1892 to 
take the place of a decayed and obsolete structure com- 
posed of two small greenhouses united together, Nos. 4 
and 5 of Dr. Lindley's report. The former (the northern 
wing) was erected in 1803, and in 1840 contained New 
Holland and Cape plants ; the latter, which was " re- 
modelled " in 1825, was filled with succulents* 


The reconstructed No. III. is a span-roofed house 60 
feet long, 23 feet wide, and 13 feet high. It contains a 
broad central and two side stages, with paths on both 

The north wing of the former No. III. had been 
latterly devoted almost exclusively to filmy ferns after 
the Kew collection had been enriched by the gift of that 
formed by the late John Cooper Forster, which was 
presented to the Royal Gardens in 1888 by his widow. 

The collection is now contained in the new Filmy Fern 
House (No. II. A.) erected on the north side of No. II. 
It is 50 feet long by 14 feet wide, with a central path and 
two cases running the full length of the house. 

The hardy ferns occupy the rockery originally devoted 
to Alpine plants (before the construction of the Rock 
Garden in 1882), and it extends over part of the adjacent 
ground. A collection was established here in 1874, and 
the rockery itself was reconstructed in 1888. 

The collection as a whole is now probably the richest in 
existence in garden forms of British species. This is due 
to the munificent bequest by W. C. Carbonell, Esq., of 
the extensive collection formed by him at Rhiw Castell, 
Usk, Monmouthshire. The whole was removed to Kew 
in 1887. It consisted of 4,261 specimens, many probably 
unique, besides some hundreds of seedlings. 

The total number of well-marked species of ferns and 
the vascular Cryptogamia (fern allies) now mounts up to 
3,500. Not more than one-third of these have been 
23941 $ 

brought into cultivation, and Kew is always glad to 
receive any additions, if possible in the form of well- 
established plants ; if not, in the shape of dry spores, 
which can be collected and sent very easily by post in 
small packets. 

The following table, which shows the percentage of the 
total number of ferns found in different parts of the world 
was drawn up by Mr. Baker in 1867 ; but he does not 
think that the discoveries of the last 20 years will have 
altered any of the figures materially : 

Arctic Zone 1 per cent. 

Europe 4 

Temperate Asia, including 

Himalayas 18 

Temperate N. America ... ... 5 

Temperate S. Africa ... ... 7 

Australia and New Zealand ... 9 

South temperate America ... 5 

Tropical Africa ... ... ... 15 ,, 

Tropical Asia ... ... ... 39 ,, 

Tropical America... ... ...42 ,, 

The present hand list is divided into three parts : 
(i.) Ferns proper (pp. 13-133) ; 
(ii.) Fern allios (pp. 133-113) ; and 

(iii.) as an appendix, a list of garden forms of British 
species (pp. 145-183). 

With regard to (i.) ferns proper, the arrangement is 
alphabetical and synonyms have been only sparingly 
introduced, those included being chiefly such as are in 


use in gardens and which are here referred to the correct 
name in each case. It has not been thought necessary, 
therefore, to supply an index. Those who wish to pursue 
the study of fern -nomenclature further may fall back on 
Hooker and Baker's Synopsis Filicum, upon which the 
present hand-list is substantially based. 

The fern allies (ii.) have also been grouped alphabetically. 
It has not been thought necessary for the present purpose 
to separate them according to a botanical classification. 

The cultivated and feral varieties of British ferns (iii.) 
have been enumerated in an appendix. Although the 
collection of them at Kew is very rich, they stand in a 
different position to the collection of recognised and well- 
determined species. Apart from their intrinsic beauty, 
which is often striking, they are of considerable scientific 
interest as showing the range of variation due to crossing 
and seminal reproduction. The amateurs and cultivators 
who have raised them have furnished them with Latin 
names, often cumbrous and fantastic, which have received 
no formal definition. They cannot, therefore, be fixed or 
quoted for any scientific purpose ; they have, in fact, the 
same relationship to the species from which they have 
originated as bedding pelargoniums bear to Pelargonium 
zonale or as the drumhead and other cabbages to Brassica 



THE edition of the Hand-List of Ferns and Fern- 
Allies cultivated in the Royal Gardens which was issued 
in 1895 has for some time been exhausted. Since its 
publication some change has taken place in the compo- 
sition of the Fern-collection. The present edition, the 
preparation of which for the press has been entrusted to 
Mr. C. H. Wright, A.L.S., Assistant in the Herbarium, is 
an attempt to enumerate the species and varieties now in 
cultivation at Kew. The species that have been acquired 
since 1895 are ihere included ; those that are not now in 
cultivation at Kew have been omitted. A few casual errors 
that had crept into the previous edition have been corrected. 
To facilitate the identification of the plants selected 
references have been given to publications in which 
reliable figures are to be found. In other respects the 
present edition follows the lines on which the edition of 
1895 was prepared. 

The table drawn up by Mr. J. G. Baker, F.R.S., in 
1867, to show the percentage of the total number of ferns 
that had been collected up to that time in different 
parts of the world, which is included in the preface to 
the 1895 edition of this hand-list, is found, in the light of 
our present knowledge of the groups dealt with, to 
require revision. It will not be possible, until some 
general list, such as Carl Christensen's admirable Index 
Filicum (now in course of publication) is available, 


to give absolute percentages. But the subjoined table, 
which may be taken as approximately accurate, will, it is 
hoped, be useful both in itself and for comparison with 
Mr. Baker's table, which remains of great historical 
interest : 

Arctic Zone *4 per cent. 

Europe 2'5 

Temperate Asia, including the 

Himalayas above 8,000 ft. ... 25'5 

North Africa, Canary Is -8 

Temperate N. America 3*2
